    Netanyahu, you must think that people are stupid and that you can fool them. The only reason you cancelled your trip to the U.S. is to try and attempt to show everyone that you really cancelled your trip to Mandela's funeral because of high costs of travel, when in fact is was because Mandela represented all freedom fighters and those who seek justice, which is exactly what you oppose. By cancelling your trip to the U.S., you think that people will think that maybe you did cancel your trip to South Africa because of high costs, but we know better. The only reason you cancelled your trip to the U.S. is to attempt to fool people into thinking that you cancelled this trip due to high travel costs, but we all o\know that soon you will make that trip, once people have forgotten about this. Now, if the cost of travel are so high, why is it that the Knesset speaker and five others did go to Mandela's funeral and you can't. The reason is not the cost but the fact that you are a racist, ignorant criminal.
